Ugly Weather

'Dramatized' picture of Bob on the skin track up the mountain today

I've noticed that Kodiak's weather tends to change in 4 to 6 week cycles.  Four to six weeks of cold, followed by 4 to 6 weeks of warm and wet.  It's really awesome when a 4 to 6 week weather pattern of cold storms sets in - that's when we get the deep snow.

Unfortunately, right now we are at the end of week 3 in a warm and wet cycle.  We have pretty much lost all our snow down low, but have actually gained snow up high on the mountain.  The downhill skiing is pretty good right now - when it is not ugly out.  And even at the pass we still have 2 to 3 feet of snow for cross country skiing - again when it is not ugly out.  Sadly enough, it is often ugly out, and I do believe we got another couple weeks of it too.  Ughhhhhhhhh  Patrick
